Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  1. Whilst perusing Twitter I came across a post from Michael Yon containing the link below.

    Obama to award Medal of Honor to Army veteran of Afghanistan war - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

    One question I have is that this incident took place in October 2009, is it normal for a Medal of Honour be be awarded so long after the incident took place??
  2. Three years is a fairly small delay compared with this chap:
